Online poker forum using NodeBB
Yeah, that's my question. I think NodeBB has a ton of potential for the future.
I am the admin of a private small online poker forum based on Simple Machines (SMF) software.
I would love to move to NodeBB but I have some issues.
First of all, we need to post hand histories on the forums.
Sites like http://www.handconverter.com/ don't offer output format NodeBB, obviously.
I am not a coder, so that sucks.
Also, I'm not sure where to host this.
What do you guys think? Any players in da house?
Nice! What dies a service like the hand converter do? What does it convert from?
It converts poker hand histories (text exported from poker tracking software, ie Holdem Manager, Poker Tracker) to a readable format for phpbb, html, etc so that it shows diamonds, clubs, spades, hearts and other info players need to review a hand and give feedback. For instance, instead of showing Ad (Ace of diamonds) it shows an A and replaces 'd' with a small diamond image.
This is how a hand looks on nodebb:

Looks like this can be done as a plugin which would take the content and replace all the special tags and stuff with their images. nodebb-plugin-poker
Was about to suggest that. A plugin would be perfect for this, no website translation step required.
Sounds good. I wish I knew how to create a plugin like that..
